The woman who stops traffic.

The woman who stops traffic, is a program about a woman who campaigns to free our streets of unnessicary traffic and replace it with healthier low impact methods of getting around. I like the title, it suggests a femme fatale, but the woman in question, Kris Murrin, is actually reducing pollution, increasing excercise and in doing so saving lives.

The Woman Who Stops Traffic is on Tuesday night 9pm on C4, and follows Kris Murrin to make the town of Marlow car free for one day.

The scheme was remarkably successful and even ended up with funding commitments for cycleways and related facilities from the local council. Check out a video clip of the program here.
